Hi Everyone:

I hope you all had a safe, uneventful trip back home. 

I have been contacted by Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond and Nigel Hickson
about the upcoming WSIS meeting in Geneva and, in particular, that there
will be a session concerning GDPR & ICANN’s work on it. 

Olivier arranged for such a session with the goal that a couple or few
members of the EPDP team could attend and present. The session is on
Thursday, 4 April. I have included information regarding the session
below. There is no travel support available for this. I have looked into
going but the Magic Eight-ball says “doubtful” at this point. 

If anyone on the team can attend, please let me know at your earliest
convenience - we are looking for 2-3 people.

Thanks for considering this and best regards,


The WSIS Forum is a UN organised annual event hosted by ITU to discuss
developments since WSIS in 2003/5. Overall information is
at https://www.itu.int/net4/wsis/forum/2019/
The Agenda for the Forum in April is
at https://www.itu.int/en/itu-wsis/Documents/Agenda2019/WF19_DraftAgenda.pdf?cb=5URGIG
The CCWG IG at ICANN applied for and was granted the following: 
_Thematic workshop:  ICANN, the GDPR and WHOIS _
Thursday, 16.30 – 18.15 
This Session (organised with our Cross Community Working Group (CCWG) on
Internet Governance) will explore the current developments within ICANN
since the coming into force of the European Union’s General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018. It will also provide an update
on the current Policy Development process (EPDP) to advise on permanent
changes to the way in which registrant data is captured and displayed on
the “WHOIS”.  
The Workshop will be comprised of 3-5 panellists and thus having at
least two members of the EPDP would be really constructive.
